Grand Rapids, Michigan Travel Agent
Wedding, Honeymoon & Group Travel Specialist
Because I am fascinated by the world around us and what it holds for us to discover, I find travel irrisistable and cannot learn enough..."The world is a book, and if you don't travel, you see only one page." When we step outside of our small corner, we open ourselves up to experience other cultures with all of our senses. That to me is truly living.
The Travel Industry has been my career since 1981 with just a short break to raise my family. I'm married with 3 grown daughters who share in my passion for travel and cooking. Being of Greek Heritage, my love of cooking, eating, and entertaining family and friends is how I choose to spend any down time I can squeeze in to my busy life!
Throughout my career I've worked in various agencies in all areas of the travel industry. Currently, I serve as owner and operator of Tranquillity Vacations, and specialize in Romance, Honeymoon, and Group Travel. I have experience customizing Destination Weddings, along with extensive European & Mediterranean Cruises and Excursions. In April of 2017 my daughter got married in Punta Cana - A Destination Wedding to include 63 people of which I handled all aspects of Travel & Wedding Planning!
